    The heart in the upper Left corner is a beauty! Did you applique it? I LOVE scrappy quilts.

    Wow! It looks wonderful. I love all the color. I bet you could stare at the different fabrics for days. That's what I love most about scrap quilts.

    It's amazing how wonderful these orphan quilts turn out! Sometimes even better than our most thought-out preplanned concoctions like yours did! You did a great job! They sure look fabulous together and isn't the scrappy look so adorable in it?!!! Love all those diff fabs in it! WTG, charismah!! :thumbup:

    I was sure I'd get a response by asking you that! You do understand that scraps, like wire clothes hangers, multiply in the dark of night! They must! There is no other explanation!!!!

    So beautiful. Those blocks were meant to go together - eventually! You did a great job uniting them.
    Thanks for sharing.
